I bought my 1990 Rs for $700, it had 190,000 miles on it and ran super strong. It was a 5.0 tbi automatic. I abused that engine and trans for 2 years straight ( racing, burnouts,horrendous over- revving) and it took it like a champ. The engine started to knock at 240,000 and it was replaced with a mildly built 350, and a T5 trans. This car now screams.
I would recommend these cars to anyone that is looking for a cheap, fast, well handling car.
I love everything about this car.
The stock 2.73 rear gear ratio wasn't great. An upgrade to the disk brake posi rear is much better.
